WoW! Very good lens and wonderful macro, Precious! I never tried reverse-ring but now I think ... I'll have soon a little walk to our favorite place (the photopavilion) to check what they have :)))

Thanks a lot, Geri!!! I was glad to find a way to use this old lens. It has also the advantage of manually aperture setting. And I was surprised the cheap kit-lens made a good job, too.
Give it a try, it's great fun. :-)))

It's amazing to think you can get out of a skin that's so close-fitting without destroying it! I can't even get out of my shirts that neatly!!! :)

Thanks a lot, my dear Friends!!! :-)))
Stevie, you're right. It's really amazing. There is only a little hole behind the head to get out. And there is even the skin from the thin legs. Don't know how they can do that.
